Peoples Conference Chairman and former minister Sajjad Gani Lone on Monday said that had Shah Faesal joined National Conference , then he was a good man, not “Delhi’s agent.”
Reacting to the remarks of former chief minister Omar Abdullah that “New Delhi is dividing votes in Kashmir by promoting few local parties,” Lone said “do we have to give power to Omar Abdullah after Maharaja Hari Singh. Omar got Kashmiris killed in 2010. Before that his father got people killed and maimed from 1996 to 2002. Before that his father rigged elections in 1987,” Lone said, while talking to reporters at Handwara.
He said should there be no other party except NC. “Do they have a copyright? Omar Abdullah is not a kid. He is putting lives of other people at stake. New people have come on the political horizon. They are moving with few PSOs. Omar, his father and other family members are guarded by 600 to 700 security guards.”
Lone said, “The father-son duo is responsible for whatever happened in Kashmir during the 30 years,” He said what democracy Omar is talking. “They got people killed both by their words and letters. They eroded Article 370.”Lone said if Shah Faesal had joined National Conference, then for Omar, he was a good person. “Now he has launched his own party, so he becomes Delhi’s agent. I pity his thinking, ” he said.
